Industrial Hemp

Status of Program

The department is currently working in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Agency to ensure AGI rules do not conflict with any federal laws. We have applied with DEA to obtain permits that allow importation of seeds and transportation of those seeds. The department is developing an internal program to implement the act. We are collaborating with universities and state partners to create a program that works best for Alabama. No permits are being issued at this time. Please visit this site frequently for updates.
